Pat Wagner

Pat Wagner is familiarly known as "The Bee Lady". You may have seen her on TV or in the newspapers around the world discussing how she treats her MS with bee venom. Thanks to Bee Venom Therapy (BVT), Pat says, she is "no longer a breathing corpse due to MS."

Here is a brief overview of her history with MS:

  • She was diagnosed at Georgetown University Hospital in the Spring of 1970 with relapsing/remitting multiple sclerosis.
  • Medications given to her included ACTH, Prednisone, Dalmane, Halcion, Valium (40 mgs./day), Seconal, Meprobamate, Dantrium, Dexedrine, Ditropan, Lomotil, Erythromycin, Keflex, Percocet, Bicodin, Tylenol #3, Fiorinal, Morphine, Indomethacin, and Timoptic eye drops.
  • The course of her MS worsened over the years until the Spring of 1992 when she experienced her worst exacerbation in terms of duration and resistance to treatment.
  • Two courses of high-dose Prednisone tapering over 6 weeks (80mgs. per day on down) did not help.
  • She was prescribed Prozac for depression because she would cry "at the drop of a hat".
  • The medical records read "Wheelchair bound, numb woman with bladder incontinence."
  • Bladder surgery was done in March of 1992 but did not prove beneficial.
  • Regarding mobility, more records read "as if her feet were nailed to the wheelchair. No movement since October, 1991."
  • Then, on March 24, 1992, she received her first intentional sting from a honeybee.
  • Besides being numb, her skeletal system felt as though it was made of ice.
  • Twenty minutes after she received a sting on her left knee, her entire leg no longer felt bone cold. This was a very positive sign to her that there may be something to this bee sting thing.
  • She received four more stings that evening and the next day her entire body was no longer cold except for her feet and hands.
  • A noticeable increase in energy was evidenced in two days by her ability to stay awake longer throughout the day.
  • The hearing in her right ear was lost due to MS, but regained within two weeks of the stings.
  • Pat's husband Ray became so hopeful for Pat that he bought a beehive, took over stinging Pat, and she changed his name to Sting Ray!
  • Although the treatment has not been a cakewalk, its effects have made Pat a new person. During a follow-up visit with her neurologist, who said there was "No hope", he called out her name and she walked over to him...
  • He did not recognize her because he was EXPECTING A CRIPPLE IN A WHEELCHAIR!
